Seth's Memorial Library

Our volunteer group has ties with a wonderful orphanage in Ghana. This orphanage, the people adopting from there, and the children there are very important to me and so dear to my heart. One family has been working hard for MONTHS to bring home one special little boy, Seth, from Lucky Hill. The adoption had gone through, and the family was waiting to receive his passport, when Seth died suddenly. It was tragic and heartbreaking. Seth's family has amazing faith, and despite their great loss and deep, deep sorrow, they have reached out to help other children still waiting at Lucky Hill, AND the surrounding area.

Seth LOVED books and LOVED to read and be read to! In memory of their sweet son, this family is opening a library at Lucky Hill! This library will allow other children at Lucky Hill orphan home to enjoy looking at books as much as Seth did. Their plans have extended to building an orphanage to accommodate families in the area who otherwise may never have the chance to read books!

This library is dependant on donations. Let us honor this sweet little boy's short life by reaching out to hundreds of children and enriching their lives through this library! Please click on the button to the right of this screen to learn more about Seth, this memorial library, and to make a donation. Remember, any small amount will help bring books to hundreds of children in Ghana!

With gratitude,
